How to obtain the Home page of the demo ?

This template use the script ScrollReveal to display a fade animation in each part of your template. Animations use CSS3 so that work only on modern browsers.

You can animate 19 differents module positions as you want. Each animation can be enable or disable.
You can use my settings or customize each animation as you want. The syntax is very friendly : all the possibilities are described here.

Is it possible to active an effect only on a specific page(s) ?

Yes it's possible. In Template manager, you must duplicate the template. Then, you can set an unique animation and assign this copy to your specific page with the optiopn "Menu assignement".


The template is build with Bootstrap 3.1.1.

Tips for the user modules

In the template manager, you can choose the width for user1 and user3. The width of user2 automatically adjusts.

So, if you publish only one user module : publish user2 (for a width of 100%).

If you publish two users module : publish user1 and user2, or user2 and user3.

It's the same thing for user4, user5 and user6
